welcome your ideas, energy, and enthusiasm. we wish you every success in your time here. i want to congratulate the president and the vice president on their hard fought victory last week. i like to say a brief word the thanks to our own nominees, governor romney and congressman ryan. they may not have won the race, but htey earned our respect and admiration. they fought valiantly for the cause of limited government, free enterprise, opportunity for all, and a stronger social safety net that is there when people need it most. they fought for the kind of constitutional conservatism americans believe in so very strongly. their lost says nothing to diminish the importance of these enduring principles or our commitment to keep fighting for them. we thank them. we thank their families for making the sacrifices in the presidential campaign demands. i want to assure everyone the cause goes on. on ot the task at hand -- in politics, there is always a temptation among those who win office to think they have a mandate to do what they will. it is the important to remember in this case the
the internals of the market, i'm talking about banks, insurers, cole companies, energy companies, they fell because, in fact, they think they're going to have higher costs. the markets think they're going to have higher costs in a second obama administration. you saw some obama care related stocks like hospitals up on the assumption that obama care is now secure. the internals showed us how investors in different sectors were reacting to a second obama presidency. but there were also concerns over europe and the fiscal cliff and the fact that now you have this election out of the way, you still have the very big problems still facing us. debt crisis, markets started to turn yesterday when mario drogy made some comments about concerns about germany. so this wasn't just a u.s. story overall. you put these things altogether and it all ended up at 313 point decline for the dow. also concerns about the debt ceiling. we're coming up again on the debt ceiling. remember the debt ceiling is what got us into this fiscal cliff mess in the first place. there will be a fight over how to raise the debt k
another reason, i believe in the power of markets. if you go back to the history of energy from day one today too, they are always running out of something. prices got high enough that we figured out a way to get more. i am very excited about it. i think it is great for the economy. it will be a boom for the next ten-25 years. lori: hasn't found a bottom, do you think? >> i think it depends on europe. that seems to be the mover of every headline we get out of there. we are not sure if we have to test the 70s first oracle backup. there is a lot of economic uncertainty right now. it is the weakest demand of the year. i think if we get some clarity on that, though bowles will be coming back and oil. melissa: thank you so much. lori: reminding us that we found some support levels. it looks like the markets are getting some contraction to the upside. the dow up 40 points. let's go back to nicole petallides to update us now on the drivers. nicole: we are seeing the markets take off. sessions highlight in this 1:00 p.m. hour. the market is really beginning to pick up some steam. all three of o

women in the senate, things may get done. you also have a lot of energy of new senators. there is a big scramble up there. my overriding role is that if you are thinking about the fiscal cliff right now, what you are in the white house or you are the mitch mcconnell, you have to consider that voters in exit polls are saying that they're willing to take higher taxes, but they think government is too big. it is there. it is within reach. but john boehner has to be given some kind of cover so he can bring 140 republican votes with him. it will be very difficult to do a. obama will have to immediately decide whether he wants to go off the cliff with the bush tax cuts, or if he will try to get something big and mushy like tax reform. it will have to be massaged in such a way through increased revenue and more money flow and fees. anything to avoid that horrible thing called a tax increase. >> we heard the last panel talked a little bit about redistricting and the impact on partisanship, especially in the house. the senate has gotten more ideological itself after last night. the democrats com
